advisory on hurrican irene. we want to go to rob marciano who will tell us what this latest advisory is about. >> it's frightening, up to 85-mile-an-hour wind now. there's a possibility from reading some nuggets from the national hurricane center that it could strengthen some more. we knew we had that possibility. still over the gulf stream where waters are still warm enough to sustain a hurricane. also getting into an environment where it favored strengthening. that's what we've seen. here it is in the satellite picture. 85-mile-an-hour winds. that's a moderate strength category one storm with possible strengthening as we go through time. about 380 miles south of new york city it's movement has picked up northerly about 15 miles an hour and we still expect that turn toward the west later on. this is huge. reading some technical stuff, the tropical storm force winds, diameter nearly 800 miles wide. that is huge. the second largest tropical system we've seen in the last few decades. hurricane force winds extend 150 miles out. the amount of damaging winds is about 350 to 400 m
irene which do cause some minor flooding in this area. they're concerned this could cause major flooding. there was a study out of columbia university that said had hurricane irene been one foot worse it could have caused an additional $50 billion in damage. the fear here is that if the water comes up over this seawall, which is right here next to me, it could flood the subway tunnels, even the electrical grid here. mayor michael bloomberg said he's considering shutting down two electrical networks in lower manhattan. that would shut down power to some 17,000 people but it could quickly get much, much higher than that. as the day continues we're expecting this storm surge to grow. high tide is about 8:50 tonight. there's a full moon so it's an even higher tide than usual. if that storm surge of six to eleven feet hits right at that bad moment, that is what concerns them most, soledad. >> of course, john, it's cold! usually when we cover these hurricanes it's much warmer. but if they lose power, as many people are predicting, 10 million people up along the east coast could lose power, you

the winners, so to speak, and the losers because it is asymmetric, right? >>> now last year hurricane irene's initial projections were $7 billion. turned out to be $15 billion. there were a lot of ancillaries once the checks come out from the government and private insurers. stimulus to the gdp. not big enough to move the needle. this one we're getting initial projections is much bigger. the two cohorts in stocks most impacted the home depot-like places, let's call them that, they were basically moved up a day ahead of the storm and then pulled off once the market turned out to be. >> we didn't see much of that on friday in terms of home depot or at lowe's which i thought was interesting and most of the retailers have closed their books on saturday, last saturday, so the impact of the storm won't actually be seen until the following quarter or the next month when they report retail sales. lowe's is the exception. they closed books on saturday. all the runup, the generators they've sold, the batteries, the flashlights, those things were almost sold out pretty much across the board. that shou

hurricane irene and giving you the side of the storms and how they compare. this image from nasa. the one on the left is hurricane sandy and right is irene. it is uncommon for a tropical system to track so far, north, especially during this time of the year >> it is so late in the year, it has taken a lot of people by surprise. we were talking about this with lynette and up to the arrival. the wind, the rain and the severity on our side of the storm. this is a perfect mix to the east and west. >>> that's right. that's our 2 degree guarantee. snow to the west. west virginia and western maryland, up to 2 to 3 feet of? snow. so, yes. you know what, even in the forecast i would not be surprised if this moved further to the east. maybe carol county, big wet flakes into the evening and tomorrow morning. that is not out of the question for right now, we're dealing with plenty of rain coming down across the area. with that, we do have flood warnings up. that's going to be through today. maybe even through tomorrow. right now, the entire viewing area is under the flood warning and even points to t

. >> reporter: sandy could create a storm surge larger than last year's hurricane irene. possibly filling the subway tunnels with water. >> lower manhattan is the most vulnerable spot for a storm surge. >> no doubt about they expect this to be a large problem for central new jersey, including philadelphia, atlantic city, new york city all of the way up toward boston. something that we need to pay attenti attention to. >>> now, potentially new york city, where hurricane irene last year wasn't so bad in the city itself, what would you say to people who are tempted to write this off? >> i want to remind folks about that hurricane, it was a bad storm, dan, it just didn't deliver the wind damage that new york city expected and the surge wasn't really here. but if you look inland where it was catastrophic flooding and so many folks were acted that storm. it was a terrible storm. this storm hurricane center said that it will have all of those elements focused on these big population areas, and new york city is one of them. i'm going to ask everyone to be prepared. >> all right, better safe than
after hurricane irene which left people without power in that state for days. martha. martha: we'll find out what lessons were learned from irene at the same time as this last year. so many places out of power for so many days. we'll see whether or not we're in better shape this time around. airports across the northeast have been brought to a virtual stand still. that is causing a ripple effect for travelers around the country. airports across the new york city area are open. but carriers canceled 7600 flights. basically you're not going anywhere in and out of this area today and down to d.c. as well in many cases. some airlines added flights out of the northeast. so they can move their planes off the ground and out of the storm's path to other areas around the country. all of this adds to the travel nightmare and indeed amtrak as well is suspending their train service across the region. so folks, where you are is where you're going to sty for the time-being. the storm is shutting down the new york stock exchange. the last time that happened was almost 30 years ago. during hurricane glo
year, hurricane irene had less than five feet of surge. but that made driving through the wall street area an adventure. new york city is lucky to have the high-rises. be very clear. this ain't irene. the water will come. could be 8, 10, 12 feet high. as brave as you are, we won't be here tomorrow morning in this spot. >> we won't. a lot of tourists are out now, now gnat we have daylight out. there's much more of the storm to come. we'll cover it all morning long. >> let's take a look at the tourists. times square normally crammed with traffic at this time. people out there walking around, taking it all in. sandy has forced new york city officials to shut down the subways for the second time in in city's history. josh, a lot fewer people than usual. >> it's not just less crowded. everything here is shuttered. the winds pick up the rain again starts to fall. this is a subway station closed for business. not the only station that is. every station throughout the city is closed as new york prepares for the superstorm. this morning, the largest transit system in the country closed down. t
're all so unique. i try to focus on the consequences. for the northeast, i think after last year's irene, we pretty well reminded everybody northeast has a hurricane threat. >> all right. >> they would like to reopen trading by wednesday of this week at the latest. >> do many insurance companies cover this type of sdmer. >> many don't. they don't include flood insurance, water damage. many homeowners if they look at their policies will recognize that hurricanes in many cases aren't covered. they would have to buy insurance through the government insurance for flooding and many haven't done that. we might find out there are plenty of people after this that don't have the coverage they would need. >> thank you. >>> the presidential campaigns have canceled more than a dozen events because of sandy. president obama called off appearances today in florida, ohio, and virginia. and another one tomorrow in wisconsin so he can monitor storm developments. we have more from the obama campaign from orlando. >> reporter: good morning, charlie, nornora, and viewers in the west.

surge if it is as forecast, which will be worse than hurricane irene last year, could create some serious problems in terms of getting in to the subway system, in terms of getting into the con ed steam lines and potentially the electrical system. and so even if the wind doesn't blow out power, there could be pry empty differen preemptive power outages. so that's one of the many reasons that they decided to hunger down with all the financial markets. stay home, there's money to be made later and we'll just deal with it. for now just a little bit of a breeze blowing here. that is clearly supposed to chan change. >> where do you go later? >> you have to find a pole, right? you know that that's -- every guy out in a strong breeze, you've seen -- you've got to find a pole around there, right? >> i'll look for it. there's light poles and stuff, but i think i need to get a little further away from the water. >> yeah, that would be a good idea, too. >> we'll have to get him a bungee cord. okay. let's get a little bit more on the forecast on the storm in maria larosa. >> as you mentioned,

deep. that water has now come up, and we're well above the levels that we were during hurricane irene. that was expected as the storm surge now comes in, and as i said the wind picks up, and it's going to get worse as the -- as the evening goes on. all of the bridges now in and out of manhattan closed. the east river and the hudson river as well as the verazzano bridge that connects brooklyn and staten island. manhattan literally is now an island. there is also now the concern that conedison the local utility has raise that had they may have to do preemptive power outages, if it looks like some of the low-lying areas are going to flood to protect the underground equipment. they would do power outages, so so much for the utility of having utilities and elect call wires under a ground. that can be an issue as well when storm surges rise. we'll be back with more as our special coverage goes on. guys, back to you. >> thank you so much, scott. that's why we have so many issues with the exchange. that's the neighborhood where the new york stock exchange is. back to the dramatic picture in m

: of course you remember the frustration surrounding irene, the executive addressed that today, he has received ainsurances that the -- assurances from bge that they will receive notices. the county has to bring in the crews to cut down the trees to get the limbs out of the way before the crews can come in to fix the lines. this time around, they should be better prepared as well. reporting live in baltimore town can county, jeff hager, abc2 news. >> if you are a boater, you are always keeping an eye on the weather. crews are getting the harbor ready to ride out the storm. >> reporter: when a town is centered around the city dock, the problems that storms bring are nothing new. >> we are preparing for the worst as we always do, and hoping for the best. the harbor master for annapolis. the rain is is not is what concerns him the most, it's the wind. >> coastal flooding, that is driven by southeasterly winds preventing the bay from draining. we are traveling down, heading south for the winter, spend time in the bahamas. >> reporter: that was the plan for ray and his friends when sandy
. my mom was down there. she said the tides were well above average, right there with irene. we have bigger waves. there it is, ocean city pier. it's gone. just the remaining two thirds of the oc pier, rainy, windy kind of a day, delaware, kent island. higher than normal on the bay because of that rising effect from really the full moon cycle and all the runoff from sandy. 42 at the airport, cold. the cold continues to spin. we continue to see the last effects of the storm drifting north but tomorrow will be mostly cloudy, breezy. i think we're dry by thursday. the cold air will keep funneling in. as we take one last look at it, less and less extinct. bring the big winds to the bay and bringing snows to the mountains and could, in fact, as a parting gift, bring a few wet flakes to the baltimore area. we're down to 36. it's going to be a cold night. 54 tomorrow. chilly, breezy. tomorrow night cool and dry. here's the outlook. the next few days sunshine will be the story into the middle of next weekend. we'll look for low 50s with lots of sun. on the whole, not a bad deal at all. >>> n
won't remind us that irene isabel. >> this is what the storm looks like from the international space station. you have to wonder is the storm coming our way. >> he's tracking the storm all week. a closer look at the storm. >> sandy is getting closer and closer to the united states, getting close to the coast here. winds to 90 miles an hour. still a very powerful 1 hurricane. we're seeing a little weakening in the last three hours. potent storm, winds moving in the northwest at 11:00. it's not so much what they are doing right now, what she will do as she rockets up the east coast in the next 2-3 days. as we approach the time frame, as we expect sandy to curve around the north carolina coast, but in addition to that, in carrying some jet stream energy likely that this storm will increase in strength in wind, field and size. perhaps a bigger storm once sandy gets to the carolinas. and break down into the move in the mid-atlantic. >>> another one, going in our direction. some of you are not taking any chances. >> after storms blew, high and dry. and someone came until now to be prepared
and wind. again, the big rain still coming down. flood warnings still statewide. irene we got over 10 rough result the coastal concerns will be not just tonight, on the eastern shore. the chesapeake bay flooding will continue tomorrow as winds will turn southwest and tomorrow we'll be watching the bay carefully, too. back to you. >> boy, joce sterman out at bwi got a taste of the storm. look that the that. >> reporter: things have really picked up here at bwi, the bge staging headquarters. they are wrapping things up. because of the the dwindling, deteriorating conditions at this point, they will take the workers that are left and bust them out to area hotels. each one is designated to go to a different hotel. at this point the staging hear for bge has become -- area for bge has become very, very minimally active. the rest of them -- the most of them have moved on to other locations as the wind intensifies quite a bit. they are planning at this point to shut down all four staging areas when they think the weather will be better. they have these four locations scattered around the baltimore
is that we kind of had those same warnings for irene. i don't want people to go oh, they just say that all the time just to get our attention. but, no, there is potential for some dire stuff going on here. and we're talking about power down -- power lines down trees down, all kinds of other things. finally the computers are agreeing. and you can see a couple doing loops. if this thing does a loop right over new york or new jersey or pennsylvania, that means 24 to 36 hours of rain coming down an inch in an hour. do the math. that's a couple feet of potential water. here we go. the potential impacts, i think the coastal infland flooding the biggest. obviously we saw that in vermont from irene. the waves will be larger than 30 feet battering long island, new rhode island all the way to massachusetts and new jersey depending on where it lands. coastal erosion. we could lose homes as the beach gets washed away and power outages could be in the millions taking literally maybe a week to get all those power lines back up. and that could be far enough that it could affect the ele
. >> the fear is it's going to be worse than irene. >> tonight full reports from up and down the east coast. >> it's only a matter of time as this system gets closer. >> governor martin o'malley over the battering in baltimore. and ted strickland on what the storm means for the political storm in ohio. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. sandy is expected to make landfall at this hour on the coast of new jersey. the storm is now a post tropical cyclo cyclone. the path on the northeast corridor has been slow and moving very wide. hundreds of thousands of people in coastal areas have been evacuated up and down the east coast. this is a live shot from delaware. we'll get a live update from the shoreline in just a moment. authorities say new york city and long island could get the worst of the storm surge. sea water could rise up to 11 feet. the damage from sandy was on display hundreds of feet above manhattan today. you're seeing a youtube video of a crane collapsing on the 57th street high-rise. city officials say workers would not be able to access the crane to keep it from falling.
island instead of bussing people off the island as they did last year during irene. and that's why we have a situation. let's walk over here and show you what the rest o of atlantic city is dealing with. this is an access ramp that takes you up to the boardwalk. so these are the streets of atlantic city down here. this is what it looks like. several feet of water covering the street. and here's where things became a problem. you have 400 people on the other side of the city who decided to ride out the storm and stay in their homes and as we talked earlier today, flood water was coming into those homes and there was no way for local emergency crews to get to them. so they had to mobilize national guard units to get those people out of their homes. things got so dangerous they had to pull the personnel back. so there were a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side of the city. the governor said it's a situation they will have to monitor and first thing in the morning at first light respond to and try to get those people out. not far from here just a couple blocks, one
to compare it to would be eirene. i was here in new york for irene last year. this is much much worse than irene. much larger storm. not necessarily a stronger storm but because it is so large it has this tremendous amount of energy with it. all of that energy can do quite a bit of damage. when the sun comes up today we are going to get a good idea as to the real full extent of what actually happened over the past 24-hours. >>> that is for sure. this has been so large up and down the east coast. it has been as far west as chicago with 20-foot waves in lake michigan. >> all day and all night you have been sending us the pictures of the storm. >> i live in long island on the north shore of long island. you have been hearing about that. look at all of the downed trees this is in my house alone. last half this is before everybody went to bed last night we had lost 5 trees. these are 100 foot tall or hire trees. a lot of people have been sending us in their photos and videos. this is also on the long island sound. things are a real mess out there. heather childers joins us with a look at some o
ire reason making -- irene. we made the call in advance to let customers know the storm is coming. you had to be under a rock to not know it was coming but if you hear the company saying something is coming, we are ready. you need to get ready, it himself. we did that to a few special needs customers. we have lists of customers who are certified to have medical problems that require electricity for equipment. we did that three days in a row. >> thank you, rob. >> we will see what happens. everybody stay safe. >> now to sarah caldwell to check the roads. we have some ponding going on? >> you are right. we are continuing to monitor the situation as the rain comes in and winds get heavier. we will see what happens in terms of downed trees and power lanes. for now we're dealing with wet roads for the most part. we have one accident of note southbound 95 in harford county just past 152 for mountain road exit. not a lot of delays because there are very few cars on the roads. we currently you from going out. at 53 on the northwest side. beltway, nothing major in traffic to the airport becau
. how does that compare to irene. >> we had first put out the call for about 1,000 workers. we now have a call for 3,000. overhead linemen and tree contractors. we have about 1,600 here or en route as far away as new mexico or oklahoma. we are staging them. we are doubling down on the resources given the magnitude of what we expect. >> you have to compete with other states. we have new jersey, delaware. >> we are competing with other states and canada to be honest with you. the states to the west are holding their crews because of the fear of the snow warnings. the ones to the south have held a bit. hopefully they will release theirs and we will pull from them. we have the crews in place now to start working. in about an hour they will hit the street. you will see trucks and meter reader vehicles that will not be reading meters but will be patrolling the area. you may see them sitting hunker the down but when the bonds come through and it is clear they will restore power. >> i know it is hard to answer this but with 3,000 personnel in last time during the durecho people were out of powe
with irene. this may be worse. >> the time to prepare is now over. people need to now stay inside and hunker down. emergency officials in new jersey said, "this is the worst case scenario ago they are predicting record flooding and power outages that could last as much as two weeks. >> daniel, thank you. the time, 9:10. more hurricane sandy coverage coming up, including a check on the roads and bridges. >> we will also be checking on the right -- on the aerial -- area roads if you do have to travel. that is next. >> here is a live look from virginia beach. a photographer brian off the lens. it is looking nasty there. this is an ocean city. coming right back. >> time to take a look at the morning commute. it is a busy one, as you might imagine. if you do not have to be on the russ, we discourage you from going out there. outlook -- some good news to report on that accident. that is gone. we have some downed wires, and that of course could create some power outages. we will let you know if be here of anything. river parkway, at 175, we had a defective traffic lights. near the intersections --
experts predict considerable flooding in an area that has little elevation. last year, irene, and driving through the wall street area. now, last year, you and i were standing almost exactly here to get a very different situation. the surge isn't going to bring just water. it's going to bring force. and that's why we don't know how it will affect an area like this already in evacuation. people aren't living in the area where we are right now. if the forecasters, not you, sam, but everybody in general, close to accurate, this place is going to look very different tomorrow. maybe permanently. >> chris, we're standing right here where the water is up on the edge. last year where we were here, the water was two or feet below that. didn't really get to the top until the middle of the storm. >> absolutely. >> amy. >> chris, sam, thanks so much. we want to take a look at times square. because normally at this hour, it's crammed with traffic. well, look at that, it is a virtual ghost town. sandy has forced officials to shut down the subways for the second time in its history. josh is out on times
storms in 1878 and 1903 and then hurricane irene became a tropical storm when it hit just last year. now, hurricane irene caused roughly $15 billion in damage all across the northeast. the state of new jersey alone got $275 million in federal assistance most going to homeowners and flooding private insurers. here in cape may, commercial fishing is the big business. a billion dollars in revenue for new jersey. further up atlantic city of course we know all of those casinos, 12 flagship institutions across the boardwalk are closed and halloween parties canceled. atlantic city is lower lying. that will be a very, very big hit. the place to watch. evacuated yesterday by 4:00 p.m. and chris christie declaring a state of emergency there because of how bad conditions are supposed to get there. it's only 9:00 a.m. right now. you can see how bad it's getting. the waves are spilling up into the dunes and there is flooding in the street. there's structural damage just a couple blocks away that we'll check out. definitely a strengthening storm here on the shore of new jersey. carl? >> kayla, thank y
evacuations in the past 14 months. the problem is 14 months ago turn hurricane irene, that just perhapses, it does not do the damage everybody predicted. a lot of people that evacuated suffered more with the evacuation centers than those who stayed behind. everybody was worried that people would say, that's the lesson they learned, they're going to stay behind this time. we see a lot of people sticking around. couple of bars are open, they're having hurricane parties. everything isn't so bad right now, but the partyings going to be turning a lot of danger real soon if everybody sticks around tonight. there's no way in or out now. the main highways into this town are now shut down. and police are now using emergency vehicles, four wheel drives, they can't use police cars to get around. and a lot of these veteran officers are telling me if they drive around they're seeing streets flooded they've never seen, even big puddles on and this again, long before the worst of this stuff hits here in new jersey. tony, allison. >> steve, that is extraordinary. as you said, great concern because the wo
irene making it the fourth costly experienced? >> this is will be worse. three storms. we've never seen anything like this. it's definitely going to be devastating. >> gregg: i was reading forbes, i wish we could put it on o up the scream. beside for potential life and safety, economists are predicting that it will upwards of $55 billion in economic damage? >> yeah, it's hard to tell. we don't really know how it'sng. estimates are all over the place. there is one positive. sectors that desperately need more work, construction workers, electricians, plumbers all the rest, they will be finding more work. so there is some stimulus there, but again it's mainly to the negative. >> gregg: if you are contractor out there, this maybe the silver lining. the other thing, we have seen in past disasters that it dramatically affects unemployment and g.d.p. because those are tied together? >> absolutely. people won't be going to work. as you said, retailers won't be selling, there won't be tax revenues. and g.d.p. measures how much we produce. if we are not producing that much, with that many people
of that was west of the coast, at least where i was we didn't get the rain we got with irene, not even close. >> right, we were most concerned about the flooding because of the tidal action. right there, yeah, the surge, we have wonderful beaches and between dewey beach and bethany beach we had to close route 1. there are a lot of others we had to close throughout the state. the bay communities were hit hard but we've got people out looking right now. we think we escaped the worst of it. >> and total cost for delaware, any idea yet in. >> we don't know. we have people as we say looking right now, i think it will take us a little while to figure that out. certainly concerned about the 44,000 families without power but we're obviously looking forward to utility crews getting out there as soon as, once conditions permit them to be out there. they can't be in harm's way if the winds are too high. >> for your state was this not as significant or not as negative of an outcome as irene, governor? >> well, i mean i'd put it this way we have a lot of flooding and we do have 40,000 plus people without
% or more out at this hour. and as we saw with irene then again with the october snowstorm, it can take a long time, perhaps a week or even nine or ten days before the power gets restored for a lot of folks. >> jeff stecker from wvit. thank you for that update. to the point he was making that it's so dark outside, there's so much water out there, there are so many downed lines. take this advice. this came from the fairfield police chief. "we have limited responsibilities, please stay inside your house and we are expecting massive damage." and i think that that would apply to communities up and down the eastern seaboard. we will continue msnbc's live coverage of hurricane sandy right after this.

[ male announcer ] don't miss red lobster's endless shrimp, just $14.99! try as much as you like, any way you like! like parmesan crusted shrimp. hurry in, offer ends soon! i'm ryan isabell and i see food differently. hurry in, offer ends soon! wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo

wanted to give you a sense of what is going on here n. this area, irene came through here and called to minor flooding last year. people remember that and already since we have been out here, we have seen the tide start to rise and they can get higher, excuse me, on sunday because of a full moon and that can help the fuel -- to fuel sandy's fury. >> you mentioned folks already leary after experiencing irene. have you talked to people, are they planning to evacuate? are they planning to ride the storm out? what are their plans? >> a lot of people taking a wait-and-see approach and sandy is not expected to hit until sunday or tuesday and you have some people joking about it and others were taking it seriously. one lady was riding here by on a bike who said to man up, there is not going to be a major storm here. and another guy is stocking up on some party favors, not going to say what they are getting ready to have a party once sandy hits. >> we know people like to have fun but this is a serious situation out there. amari fleming, thank you very much for the update tonight. >> and, gar
